2 Samuel 6
When David brought back the Ark to Jerusalem, he did what the Philistines had done years ago: he put it on a cart.
God had allowed the Philistines some “latitude” so the ark could get back to Israel. But for Israel, there were rules. They were to know better.
There are things that are “holy” and “sacred” that we, as the people of God, should treat differently. The world has no idea, but we need to understand that is the world. The Kingdom of God is not this world.
We spend too much time treating too many sacred things as “common” because we want to show the world “we’re just like you,” when we need to not worry about what the world thinks in some of these things and do what is “holy.”
Treat the presence of God as holy.
